Peterson Diamond Pick – GSP [.025″]
The Peterson Diamond lock pick is loved by professionals and hobby pickers alike for its ability to locate and set pins quickly.
If you can imagine for a moment dragging this pick across the pins—it would gently raise the pins as they went up the ramp and then gently lower them as they go down the ramp.
In many ways, it’s like single pin picking with a rake!
It is essentially a hybrid pick between the gem and the short hook that while isn’t necessarily a hook, is used much like one. However, like the Gem, it has the awesome benefit of being able to quickly locate and set pins.
What is “GSP”
The GSP stands for “Government Steel Picks” and is exclusively a Peterson Manufacturing product.
While most lock picks are made of 10-95 carbon steel, Peterson GSP picks are made of an elite stainless steel alloy similar to the 420 stainless steel that is used in many surgical tools—like scalpels—essentially making these the strongest lock picks on the market!
This is where GSP has a HUGE advantage over other lock picks.
What this means for you as a picker is that your picks will last significantly longer than traditional and cheaper picks.
In the long run, this will save you a lot of money in replacing picks. This also makes these picks ideal for those starting out as beginners tend to be rougher on their tools.
There is something about holding tiny tools in your hands for an extended amount of time that will cause you pain… and not just physical, but emotional. There are few things worse in this world than being so close to opening a lock and having to drop your tools because of hand cramps or bleeding fingers.
To solve this affliction the Peterson Long Ripple Pick boosts an ergonomic and comfortable plastic handle.
These handles not only making your picking sessions more enjoyable but also increase the feedback you receive due to more surface area of your hand being on the pick.
